Stubbs makes sense as a platoon against LHP, but it's really not that important. The main thing is to get a new primary guy for that position.
I'm still confused. You say Stubbs makes sense as a platoon against LHP (career .353 wOBA), but yet Heisey doesn't make sense against RHP as the other half (career .349 wOBA).
That's the same production. And unlike OPS where you can argue OBP is more important, you can't make the same argument for wOBA because it's configured to regress the added importance of getting on base. That means the two players against their specific splits are almost identical in overall production. So Heisey, swinging away and all, would theoretically give the Reds the same number of runs in the same number of at-bats against RHP as Stubbs would against LHP.
